Gauteng – Both Big and Small

Gauteng is the smallest province in South Africa but houses the biggest population in the country. Almost 15 million people, which adds up to a quarter of the total counted population in this country, live in Gauteng. Since this province has such a large population, it boasts with the widest selection of rehabilitation centres in South Africa. Despite the fact that most people are prone to choose a drug rehabilitation centre that is close to their living area, it might be more beneficial to break from familiar environments and get away from the busy city life to focus on personal healing.

Experience the setting of Beethoven Recovery Centre

Beethoven Recovery Centre is a drug rehabilitation centre in Gauteng, located just outside of Pretoria and close to Johannesburg, on the border of this province and the North West Province. Our centre is in close proximity to Pretoria, yet remote and removed from the busy rat race of city life. Situated in the heart of mother nature, our centre offers a scenic environment at the foot of the Magaliesberg Mountains and next to the Hartbeespoort Dam. Added to that, our premises feature beautiful gardens and a load of extramural facilities, including a swimming pool, gymnasium, courses for volleyball, soccer, and croquet, and a room for table tennis and pool. This is an ideal combination for optimised drug rehabilitation, as the tranquillity of the setting puts our patients at ease and adds to their well-being in a natural way. The proverbial cherry on top is that our patients are housed in a private residential rehabilitation unit, offering them a sense of privacy during their rehabilitation period at Beethoven Recovery Centre.

The first phase is compulsory and stretches over 3 weeks, followed by a completely voluntary phase of 4 weeks, which comes highly recommended for every patient. During the initial 3-week phase, our professionals assist each patient to understand their addiction and provide them with required tools and knowledge to come to grips with it. Added to these are constructive discussions, a medical examination, a psychological assessment, a psychiatric evaluation, and intensive treatment if needed. Our programme puts the focus on the patient as an individual. If the patient is committed to change and is positive about the outcomes of the programme, the chances of success will always be very high. Once again, it all depends on the patient. The second phase of the programme, which is completely voluntary, will assist the patient to overcome their addiction and avoid any relapse throughout their daily routines. This phase empowers and educates the patient to face life again and get back to a lifestyle of sober living wellness.
